Is it possible to drive an 8 tonne 4x4 truck from Makassar to Palu??  (2 Answers)

Hello friendly people. I have an adveture that im trying to finalise however need some local knowledge from people that may have already driven from MAKASSAR and all the way through to PALU?? If you live in the region or have driven this before can you please offer your assitance and expertise on the matter. I would like to know road conditions. are they ***umem, concrete or dirt roads?? Is it a sealed road and with 2 lanes or just one lane??

What would be the prefered route to take. I was thinking east coast
Makassar-Mandalle-ParePare-Tanatoraja-Rantepao-Palopo-Lake Poso-Palu.

Is this possible, do trucks carry cargo through this route to major towns and also are there fuel/petrol stations along the way and how frequent.

Any information would be greatly apreciated:)

Thank you all for your help so far with other matters, this is a great website.

Dan

Self driving from Makassar to Palu Up the East Coast & back Down the West Coast - POSSIBLE??  (6 Answers)

Howdy folks, Hope everyone has had a wonderfull NYE and started the new year with a bang:)

Am chasing some insight and local experiences from the Makassar to Palu regions.. Hoping you can help:)

Will be flying into Makassar on the 28th February....
From here im searching local truck companies to rent/lease a truck (6-12tonne flat bed tray truck) and self drive up the east coast to Palu.

1) Ive done a fair bit of research already and have decided on the stops:
Makassar - ParePare - Rantepao -Tentena and Palu.... Firstly if anyone could inform me if this is the best route and most scenic?? Any MUST DO stops to view, waterfalls, local traditional ceremonies in hidden villages or landmarks id be very keen to hear about along this route..

2)And then we plan to drive back to Makassar but along the west coast this time. Now is this possible and again if there are Any MUST DO stops to view, waterfalls, local traditional ceremonies in hidden villages or landmarks id be very keen to hear about along this route..

All information woud be welcomed.

Also ive heard a few different stories but what is the go with international licences?? I will be driving with a friend and we are both from Australia. Do i need to go to the local Mekassar Police station and apply for a international license??

One last thing, i have already had a few offers from local companies around the port of makassar but if anyone else knows of where to find trucks to rent/hire than please the more the merrier. Even if its an uncle or family friend that owns a truck and wants to make a pretty penny and lease his truck to me for 2 weeks thn id be happy to chat:)

Thank you all in advance...

Daniel

Taxi or Bus trip from Makassar to Palu  (6 Answers)

I'm thinking of a trip by taxi or bus from Makassar to Palu.
I want to make a trip on the western coast. Since I wan'na avoid Lake Poso and its visinity, because I heard Lake Poso area is dangerous due to terrolists.

If by taxi, what is good methods to pick up a reliable one ? How much is a normal cost ?
How many hours does it take ? A rough figure is okay. Even if the cost is a bit higher, I wan'n choose a safer way.
And I think the distance maybe 900Km. Do we need to make a stopover along the way ?

If by bus, are there buses running through this rout - I mean along the western coast of the Slawesi Island ? Making a bus transfer is okay.
Where is the bus terminai in Makassar ? And if you know, where is it in Palu ?

Regards,
